I'm not naieve to think that players don't do drugs. But if your gonna do that kind of thing just be abit smarter about it.As long as I have been involved in the game players have been doing drugs, sometimes worse than coke. I don't do drugs, have never even smoked cannabis, but I don't get shocked by those who do, especially league players. My guess is no more league players do coke than the general public, so the reflection on the game is nil. Just saying like.
They have such great depth if they decide a better body type is needed they can just select it whereas we mainly need to choose the best of who is available or from who we have at the time. When I first started watching Bob Fulton loved having a big pack with a big second rower or both big second rowers being huge. They would monster us. We would finally get the players to combat that and they would choose a more mobile pack and move us around.O how things change so quickly. We thought we were into a new era of kiwis dominance. It was only short lived. Really it was a reflection of how bad sheens was as a coach and selector. Meninga knew he had to have a bigger pack to face us and he had no problem finding 6'6 130kg forwards that make us look tiny.
We never were going to be dominant. It was a smalle period of time where Aussie were remoulding their winning model and now we and the rest of the world seem light years away again.
95% of the team look to focus more on doing mean as pukana in the haka, with the game itself being almost incidental. The game isn't about fucking cultural pride, it's about performing like a team of league players on the field. Then we follow that up with the fucking captain and a senior player snorting coke in a public place that's bound to have security cameras all over the place. Fucking retarded pair of oxygen thieves if ever I saw it. This is the state of our game? THIS? Fuck off.
Strangely enough, it was something before the match that really got to me. Bluey's record as Kiwis coach, 22 games, 6 victories. Somehow, that was enough to get him the gig to coach the Warriors? Fuck me, it's no wonder the Warriors and Kiwi league are as limp as they are if that's seen as a good enough record for someone to be lauded as The Man.
I am partial to opinion but won't forsake culture and heritage for those turkeys, however what REALLY rankles me is that they have the arrogance to go away from a traditional haka and make their own version (which is as shit as their recent results).I might be entirely offside here but I don't believe that the Kiwi's even deserve to perform a haka pre game.
I have a theory that perhaps they just couldn't hack it anymore in a Kidwell coached Kiwis so they did it knowingly in view of CCTV to deliberately escape further selection..People make mistakes but cocaine please.... if they won the game, i would of been more bias but like come on, as a fan we just got hammered and they want to go do drugs. If i have a bad day at work, i can't just do drugs and hopefully not get caught.
Not sure how everyone will respond to this but:
IF Bromwich and Proctor are found guilty, tough call but i feel they shouldn't be able to pull on a Kiwis jersey again.
I get people deserve second chances but
1. He is a Captain.
2. Both are from the Storm system (they should know better).
3. They just got hammered by an Australian team.
4. Its a world cup year.

I get they have lives outside of league, but they get paid the money they do cause they are in that spotlight.
If Kidwell follows Kearney in this, they wont be in the world cup side.
